Six schools in the Tolleson Union High School District will celebrate the Class of 2020 June 29 at their respective school sites. The exception is University High School, which will have a graduation ceremony at the Tolleson Union High School District office.
Graduations were to take place at State Farm Stadium.
“With the overriding concern for the health and safety of our students, their families and our staff members being the top priority, the district made the decision to move graduation events to the school campuses instead,” a press release said.
West Point High School, the newest high school in the Tolleson Union High School District, opened this year with freshman and sophomores only and does not have a graduating class this year.
The schedule for the graduation events June 29 are:
• Sierra Linda—8 to 11:30 a.m.
• Westview—8 to 11:30 a.m.
• Copper Canyon—5 to 9 p.m.
• La Joya Community High School—
6 to 9 p.m.
• Tolleson Union High School—
6 to 9 p.m.
• University High School—
7:30 to 8:30 p.m. (district office).
According to the district, all graduation celebrations will follow social distancing protocols to ensure the safety of everyone in attendance. All school and district staff members will wear masks and encourage all guests and graduates to do the same.
